Where's Chaz (When in NYC)?
Several folks have asked me: Where exactly do I live in Manhattan? Well, here are two angles of my flat:
The first photo is a view of our building from the south, looking north. The second photo is from the east, facing west.
I know my blog entries have been sparse lately -- sorry about that. At least my photo album is filling up!!
